About us

Business in the Community is the oldest and largest business-led membership organisation dedicated to responsible business.

What we do

We inspire, engage and challenge members and we mobilise that collective strength as a force for good in society to

  • Create a skilled, inclusive workforce today and for the future
  • Build thriving communities in which to live and work
  • Innovate to repair and sustain our planet

Membership is not just a badge, it is a public commitment
to a better way of doing business.

We were created nearly 40 years ago by HRH The Prince of Wales to champion responsible business.

Today, we have a vibrant membership of hundreds of businesses, large and small, connected by the conviction their success is inextricably linked to society’s prosperity.
